This is my second time in Hohhot/Huhhot/Huhehaote, the capital of Inner Mongolia, China. I've been here one week this time.
But despite many scouting missions I seem to be unable to find what I think of as a regular Internet cafe or cafe with free Wi-Fi.
A place that provides somewhere to sit, power sockets, and a Wi-Fi signal you can connect to. Typically you pay for coffees and snacks but not for online time or megabytes.
Now that I know the characters I have been able to find many "Internet bars"
网吧. But they never have Wi-Fi and their computers only ever have a very limited version of Windows with a very limited version of Internet Explorer 6. The majority of modern websites, including Stack Exchange are not usable from them.
I'd prefer a cosy place that has food as well as hot drinks, but really I'm interested to know if there's any place at all with Wi-Fi and electricity. I'm right near the University where things like this would usually be.
(For comparison, such places are trivially easy to find in Seoul, and even common in Ulaanbaatar!)
